This is the perfect segment if you want a quick overview of what Lighthouse of Paterson is about, what we already achieved and what our goals for this year look like.


Lighthouse for the win! 
On the 15th of June our annual charity game has taken place. This time FC Hill "Leo Hillinger's celebrity team" played against our national public service broadcaster Team "ORF". Find out who won and take a look at our video. The Lighthouse family is moving forwards - together! 


We want to achieve better living standards for our community and especially for Paterson's children. We educate them about topics such as AIDS & HIV, environmental protection and drug & alcohol abuse. 
Sport is our strategy to keep them balanced and focused on school.


We finally got a Lighthouse Headquarter! This is going to be the space where we can hold our presentations, meetings, accommodate volunteers and most importantly where Patersons youngest know they always can come to when they need help. We have a long way to go but we still think, together everything is possible!
